Abuja - A former Inspector-General of Police and Chairman of the Police Service Commission, Mike Okiro, was interrogated by the Independent Corrupt Practices and other related offences Commission over an alleged N275m fraud, Punch reports.
His interrogation was sequel to a petition by a member of staff of the PSC, Aaron Kaase, to the ICPC, claiming that Okiro allegedly siphoned N275m out of the N350m that was obtained by the commission from the Office of the National Security Adviser to train PSC staff.

PSC staff were scheduled to partake in the monitoring of the conduct of men and officers of the Nigeria Police in the last general elections.
In his petition, Kaase alleged that Okiro had made bogus claims to train highly inflated number of his commission’s staff in Lagos, Abuja and Kano.
According to him, the trainings were roughly carried out to a few staff in Mararaba, a satellite community of the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.
